This week's episode opened with our 12 contestants in the Meatpacking district surrounded by a fleet of Lexuses. Another unconventional materials challenge! In a group setting! Brought to us by a shameless product placement! The designers cruise through the city (you know, in their Lexuses) with the task of visiting two of three sanctioned stores from which to buy their materials. Armed with an amount of money that would cover a market-rate apartment Downtown, they shop. And gossip about the “living nightmare” that is the trio of Ken, Sue and Alexandria.

Editor: Let's thank State Delegate Rick Impallaria for his effort in Annapolis last week. Finally our veteran's organizations such as the American Legions and VFW posts will be allowed gamming. We all know that gambling is here to stay and now our veterans clubs will be able to have five machines. I would also like to thank Senators Barry Glassman and J. B. Jennings for their support in the senate. What is disappointing to me is that our other delegates voted against the bill knowing that if the veterans did not get gamming in the special session, they never would.

SATURDAY WAS a beautiful day to get outdoors for yard work, and that's exactly what residents in and around Mount Airy did during the first Downtown Work Day. Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy, the event allowed the community to show its pride by helping "spruce up" the downtown area. Beginning at 9 a.m., about a dozen volunteers weeded and trimmed the area while others swept sidewalks and picked up litter. Refreshments were provided for those who helped. According to event organizer Frank Johnson, the Kiwanis Club has wanted to do a community service project for a while and this seemed like a good opportunity.

Military spouses revive tradition of gold-star flags Kati Haggard, 10, brushed gold paint last week on a wooden dowel for a flag dedicated to her gymnastics teacher, Army Pfc. Diego Rincon, who was killed in Iraq. "We wanted to give it to his family to let them know we support them," said Kati, while making the flag with her mother, Sherri. The two, visiting Aberdeen Proving Ground from their home in Georgia, joined a group of military spouses who gathered to make gold star flags for the families of service members killed in Iraq.

At one end of a shelf in my office at the paragraph factory a plaque collects dust, through which it can be seen that John E. McIntyre successfully participated in The Times Mirror Leadership Institute for Managers. Twelve years ago, when there was still such a thing as Times Mirror.  Having been selected, I was given a choice of seances in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Huntington Beach, California. Not being entirely dim, I packed for the West Coast.  The Leadership Institute for Managers turned out to be a kind of summer camp for grown-ups.

BETHESDA - A mother arrives at the Red Cross office at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on a mission for her son, a 23-year-old soldier and double amputee. He needs a back scratcher. With her bright eyes and wide smile, volunteer Janice Chance gives her that and more - a reassuring rub on the arm and an offer to do anything else she can for the soldier, who is visiting the hospital for tests. In a sense, Chance is here for her own son, too. Marine Capt. Jesse Melton III, the oldest of Chance's three children, was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2008.

Maryland's schools won another gold star this week when the College Board reported that the state ranked first in the percentage of high school seniors scoring well on the Advanced Placement tests, which entitle students to college credits at many higher-education institutions. The accolades will surely please state school officials, who have touted the progress the state has made in recent years. But like similarly upbeat assessments of state graduation rates and student achievement levels last month by the journal Education Week, the report shouldn't distract attention from the serious challenges the state still faces, particularly in its most troubled school districts.

Ann Sherman Wolcott, At Aberdeen Proving Ground's chapel yesterday, the meeting room was humming with three dozen military wives who were ironing, measuring, cutting and sewing more than 200 yards of fabric into red and white flags. Others, including a few children, were painting wooden rods to hold the flags. And at the end of the assembly line, Elaine Valentin sat down at her sewing machine to realize a dream: to make a flag for every family who has lost a loved one in Iraq or the war on terrorism.

Bless Morris Martick. As the 79-year-old chef approaches his eighth decade, he's still turning out some of the tastiest, most eclectic Gallic-inspired chow in Baltimore. And he's preparing it by himself in the un-air-conditioned kitchen of the 19th-century townhouse where he was born. "When they repealed Prohibition in 1932, we were the first people in Baltimore to get a liquor license," he says. "We started out as a grocery store in 1917, but we were really bootleggers." Which would explain why his eponymous restaurant feels like a speakeasy.
